    At your size/wieght, You'll do fine in the Nano 7. The material is lightweight so beware of wearing sharp objects when using. I own two of these hammocks and love them. I sometime use one as a gear hammock or when going out with the family, as a back up.

    I have a Nano, but even at 5' 6" I felt it was too small. Plus, it doesn't seem to be very substantial, but a lot of people use them without problems. One thing to consider is you'll need some sort of bug net with it. Your weight advantage may disappear with a bug net.

    +1 on getting a bug net, although you can get pretty light. I believe Fronkey's net is in the range of 4-5 ounces. A HUG net is in the 2-3 ounce range.

    I'm also 5'4 and am quite happy with the nano. I've Been using it for winter as I don't need the bug net and it works well with a uq.I'm not a angle sleeper tho and prefer a taught straight lay.I'll be making a bug net soon once the material arrives but will getting a hammock from papa Smurf with an integrated netfor summer work I think

    I attached my review of the grand trunk.

    I think it is a fantastic hammock. I have heard that for some people it is perfect and for others it is not. I rather a longer hammock that is a bit wider but for a smaller person it might be the perfect fit.

    You must be a back sleeper, and a still sleeper.

    I love my nano! I'm 5-10, 175 lbs. The hammock itself is just 4.3 oz. (I think). I added whoopies and a structural ridge line. I can't sleep on my back, at all, not one bit. The nano is very comfy for me on my side. It doesn't cradle you like larger hammocks but its stable and I tend to shift positions frequently. I also have the BIAS micro weenie and the HH ultralight. They generally get loaned out or stay in the closet, while the nano goes where I go.

    I'm torn between the nano and the bias weight weenie. I'm leaning towards the bias because its a little bigger. Any other suggestions or recommendations? I'm planning on just using it for fun, not for overnights; so the lighter the better.

    The nano is so small and light, although in reality, it's only a few ozs. less those few ozs. are the equal to almost two nanos to the BIAS MW.
